The network connection to those servers is capped to something like
30-50KBytes/s, you won't get anything out of that.
Also please don't run any sequence of tests over them since:
- if anybody is running test benchmarks you'll skew the results
- our ssh consoles will be mostly stuck as you make requests since
   you'll be eating away all bandwidth

Please people, be patient until the conference is done
